'Macon In The Mirror' Project Launched

Macon and Bibb County—as we know them—will cease to exist at the stroke of midnight January 1, 2014.

The consolidated government will take control, with newly-elected leaders and—many hope—a new identity and a fresh outlook. It may be good time for those of us who live here to have a conversation about who we are as a community.

GPB Macon and our partners at The Telegraph and the Center for Collaborative Journalism at Mercer University are embarking on a new project we call "Macon in the Mirror," and if you live in Macon-Bibb we're going to want to talk to you.

Tim Regan-Porter, director of the Center for Collaborative Journalism, stopped by to explain.
